3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pink-red, nice colour, very attractive. Fairly sweet, and with a lot of acidity. Fairly acidic palate. Kind of simplistic.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked bottle, vintage 2014
Skewed Refractometer Reading: 25°B
Reddish color. Fruit aroma, almost berries, a bit caramelized. Sweet but not syrupy, the acidity overwhelms that, still quite fruity, a touch of raspberries. Pleasant astringency in the final.
Nice drink, nothing impressive though.

Bottle - Red apple and a touch of peel. Pinkish and clear. Nice red apples and a great sweetness with some nice apple tannins.

375mL bottle, pours a clear bronze with no head. Nose is complex as hell, with treacle toffee, caramel apple and some residual brown sugar. Flavour is complex as hell, with treacle toffee and brown sugar upfront, followed by caramel apple and booze. Impeccably balanced, with no cloyingness from the sweentess at all. Fabulous stuff.

Sample from a bottle. Deep copper pink red pour. Aroma is tart apple, light funky notes, ripe apple, applesauce. Taste is sweet, better than the aroma really rich juicy fleshy apple flavor, bright tart flavor. Palate is rich, full bodied, nice liquory palate. Nice stuff.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2½ oz from bottle (375 ml).
Appearance: Deep golden amber with pinkish reflects and nice legs.
Aroma: Mild. Tart apples, brown sugar notes, floral notes and oak.
Taste: Now it gets interesting! Sharp acidity. Light to moderate sweetness, but completely cut by the acidity. Tart apples with light brown sugar, red fruits, oak, hints of vanilla and a touch of alcohol.
Palate: Medium body. A bit liquorous. Nice sharp acidic finish with lingering tart apples and light warming.
Overall: Not the most expressive aroma, but it’s one of the best tasting Ice Ciders I have tried so far. The acidity is really really interesting and help the drinkability. I could have drank the full bottle (or at least half of it) by myself easily. Superb!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2015. Reddish, rose colored cider. Initial aroma has some tea and perhaps cranberry? Lightly woody, lots of sweet apple, plum, and some vanilla. There’s a really nice acidity to this. Great apple and berry-like acidity. A touch of vanilla, some caramel, flowers, and cranberry. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Kbudd! Nose is sweet and apple. Taste is like apple juice with just a hint of sweetness and alcohol. This is my first iced cider and its dangerously drinkable. Barely acidic. Overall a tad sweet but very good.
